decides what the administration is going to do on the issue. president obama is pretty clearly committed to prevent iran from getting the bomb and ultimately accountable. i'm not so sure that we should worry that much those who may support president obama that hagel s somehow going to slow down the whole debate or prevent a credible threat of force. obama gets to make that call. i think it is healthy that senator hagel would introduce new perspectives and genuine concern about where this war could go if we choose to start it. not that we have any good options in iran. he could be a useful voice at a time when a lot of washington seems to be developing a conventional wisdom we may have to strike iran pretty soon. >> shepard: we will see how brutal the confirmation hearing is and if he is weakened afterwards. thank you. >> thank you. >> shepard: the law make ares have two months now you to reach a deal on raising the debt limit or the government could start defaulting on its loans. that could put the entire world economy into a tail spin analysts tell us. republicans and democrats say they
. >> the obama administration response to the caller brought will appear in sandy hook. this smells of censorship. i do not think it really works. it is the parents were by the kids' games. i do not know. i think this is the wrong angle of the wrong tree to bark up so to speak. again, gun lobbyists and gun- control in japan have stopped mass shootings and they have much more violent cartoons and video games. >> we have a real interesting battle between first and second amendment. >> that is only by opinion. >> let us talk about the new treasury secretary. >> it looks like jack lew will replace timothy gai nter. >> what is a treasure secretary do? they're run financial--they look after financial debt. >> and the bottom right hand corner of our people money gaitner signature. what is that that is horrible. >> we have to change that. i cannot put that on monday. >> this seems like an eye appointment. he has very little experience. he is a big no god. he will say no time and time again. he is the one that will have to keep the budget cut going when we hit the debt ceiling right. >> the debt ceiling c
risks for the obama administration, for the democrats in this gunfight. >> there are a lot of political risks. if gun control was easy, they would have done it a while ago. the assault weapons ban has not been renewed for eight years, wolf. it's been sitting out there. and i think in my conversations with administration officials, what they are going to come up with and that sort of echos what jim was saying, they are going to come up with what someone describes to me as a menu of options. the menu of options will include a ban on assault weapons and also include closing the gun show loophole, limiting purchases of the high-capacity magazines. so they are going to put those options out there he a there is attention inside the democratic party. do you make a huge push on assault weapons and hurt yourself on the other list or do you kind of ease up on assault weapons and maybe go after the magazine clips, which some people believe would be more effective. don't forget, there's a lot of history here and joe biden was the person managing the 1994 crime bill, which included the ban on assaul
, of the obama administration has been they don't really care about people with private -- >> you have a long way to go. >> i happen to think jack lew is qualified. look, he's been omb director twice. >> we haven't had a budget in three years. >> he's been chief of staff. he's extraordinarily familiar, we all know, with congress. if you think about the issues immediately ahead which are largely fiscal, he couldn't be better prepared. he has the confidence of the president. he's going to be smoothly confirmed. those are critical criteria. for example, you can't afford in this environment, both globally as well as relative to congress and fiscal cliff, too, you can't afford to nominate someone whose nomination is going to be hung up on the hill. you can't do that. >> former senator judd gregg i heard him this morning saying, look, whether you agree with him or not this is a man who's qualified and he will pass. >> and he's respected on both sides of the aisle. >> and he worked for tip o'neill when tip o'neill was negotiating with ronald reagan and that's an important point. >> he was 20 years old.
to the 68,000 there now. the administration insists they must have immunity from local laws. obama is scheduled to meet with karzai on friday. they have many delicate issues to address and finding an agreement that's acceptable to both sides is expected to be difficult. >>> a terrible traffic and soaring land prices are some of the unwelcome features of asia's booming cities. those problems are especially acute in vietnam. construction companies from developed markets are competing to offer solutions. they include a railway company that wants to use lessons learned in japan to help vietnam build cities of the future. akiko has more from hanoi. >> reporter: vietnam is booming. people pour into the cities look for work and fortune. but not everyone is moving forward. the hanoi traffic gets worse every year. and dangerous, too, with more and more accidents. but infrastructure isn't the only problem. land prices have spiked. one potential solution is inspired by lessons from japan. this man works for a tokyo corporation, a japanese company head quartered in tokyo. next to vietnam's lar
" this morning. that notes that obama's new administration looks to be basically all male. there is a concern that women are underrepresented. how would you respond to that criticism? >> well, i would agree with that somewhat. we saw valerie on the front page. within the white house. she's the only senior woman. i have a lot of respect for her. but it would be nice to see more diversity, both in the cabinet and in the white house. so i hope this is something that they've focused on going forward. with that said, you know, you need to look at qualifications, too, and people that the president has confidence in. but i would like to see more women. perhaps in the white house, internally in the white house. >> sheila, are you joining us on a week where major banks are putting even more legacy problems behind them to some degree? varying degrees. we've seen what the stocks have done in the past year. we've seen them leading things like the dow. are you surprised or impressed by their progress? >> well, i'm relieved. i still think there are a lot of challenges ahead. the mega banks stocks continue

at the defense department. he was a holdover from the bush administration and leon panetta and general petraeus, hardly obama insiders but now all of a sudden you have people who seem to be much more on the obama team bandwagon, much more loyal to him. john kerry at the state department, he backed president obama early in the 2008 nomination fight. you now have chuck hagel, someone that obama worked closely with in the u.s. senate and he's been an adviser to him now in the white house and then john brennan at cia, someone who's been by his side for four years. >> what is the strategy? first read mentions jack reid and the statement praising chuck hagel. what's the strategy? you have people wondering why not take up the fight for susan rice and how are the dynamics different? >> as chuck todd pointed out, there are as many as ten different democratic senators opposed to chuck hagel and it's going to be up to the white house to wage a significant campaign using some democrats like senator jack reid from rhode island to win them over. the white house probably decided that they needed to go ahead a
of diversity in the president's recent picks, for high-level administration posts. president obama chose a trusted insider to replace timothy geithner as treasury secretary. >> under president clinton, he presided over three budget surpluses in a row. so for all the talk out there about deficit reduction, making sure our books are balanced, this is the guy who did it. three times. >> reporter: jack lew, obama's chief of staff and former budget director has been by the president's side through bruising deficit reduction negotiations. but lew is not a darling of wall street or republicans. in bob woodward's "the price of politics," speaker john boehner says he told the president, "please don't send jack lew." during the fragile debt ceiling negotiations of 2011, "it was unbelievable," boehner said. "at one point, i told the president, keep him out of here. i don't need somebody who just knows how to say no." with the lew announcement, all of the president's top picks, state, defense, cia, and treasury are white men. at every briefing this week, reporters have peppered press secretary jay c
didn't want the confirmation hearings to focus on the bush administration's use of waterboarding. and enhanced interrogation techniques. mr. obama says he and brennan are in sync on that, too. >> he understands we are a nation of laws. in moments of debate and decision, he he asks the tough questions and he ingists on high and rigorous standards. time and again, he has spoken to the american people about our counter terrorism policies because he recognizes we have a responsibility to be open and transparent as possible. >> now arizona senator john mccain says he still has questions about what role brennan played in enhanced interrogation and why he seemed to publicly support it. lindsey graham says he may place a hold on brennan's nomination unless the administration answers more questions about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left ambassador chris stevens and three others dead. shepard? >> shepard: wendell goler on the lawn at the white house tonight. hillary clinton went back to work today. staffers say she has been talking nonstop to senator john kerry. he is
